It is in a magnificent and relaxing setting that the Bardet family cultivates its 60 ha of vines. In Saint-Emilion, on the banks of the Dordogne, a key element in the history of the vineyard, the passion for wine has been passed on from father to son for several generations in the family business.Lire plus Learn more
Philippe Bardet, the current owner of the Bardet vineyards, has decided to develop the family vineyard since it has grown from 9 to 55 hectares in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation and from 0 to 35 hectares in the Castillon, Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. In 1994, his fight against limiting the effects of viticulture on the environment encouraged him to get involved in FARRE (Forum des Agriculteurs Responsables et Respectueux de l'Environnement). He then became a member of the Saint-Emilion Wine Council, where he headed the technical commission in charge of terroir and sustainable development. In addition, he is co-president of the technical commission of the CIVB (Conseil interprofessionnel du vin de Bordeaux) and a member of the regional commission of the INAO (Institut national de l'origine et de la qualité). This respectful conduct ensures ISO 14001 certification. In addition, he is President of the Bordeaux Wine EMS (Environmental Management System for Bordeaux Wines). In this logic, it puts in place many measures to limit the impact on the environment, such as grassing in the vines, the reconstitution of natural ecosystems thanks to hedges around the plots, the observation of the vineyard by a meteorological station, the strict waste sorting system and the use of geothermal energy.
At the beginning of the 1980s, after graduating in viticulture and oenology at the Bordeaux-Blanquefort Agricultural High School, I settled as a young farmer and developed the family vineyard (from 9ha to 100ha) into Castillon, Côtes de Bordeaux and Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellations. In 1989, I took over all the family properties.
"Our philosophy is to respect our terroir and always seek to produce wines that are authentic and characteristic of the terroir of Saint-Émilion. By engaging in sustainable agriculture by reducing its impact on the environment and respecting the health of the crops, we cultivate our vines with passion. The terroir of the appellation is exceptional because it allows us to produce wines that the winegrower wants to make".
After years of work and expertise and years of testing, the wine revolution is underway with my creations. In 2012 I set up 2 new machines: the Tribaie and the Calibaie. The first one allows to sort and clean the berries and the second one does a real selection work by separating the smallest berries concentrated in sugar to make the first wines of the property, from the largest berries used to make the second wines and rosés.
